Kashiwado Japanese Wooden Design Chair

Kashiwado Chair

If you are looking for something that you would expect to find in a museum, look no further.

The Kashiwado chair is a fabulous yet hard to find icon of modern design. Designed by Isamu Kenmochi for Tendo Japan in 1961. The Kashiwado chair was actually created for a famous Sumo wrestler named Kashiwado from that time. This chair is truly a work of art which takes several weeks to create. Craftsmen first cut out several blocks of the bottom roots of a Japanese cedar (Sugi). They carefully select the best wood with most tree-rings. The blocks are carved and layered on top of each other with a special process. The chair is polished and coated afterwards.

Material: polished cedar wood
